After years of training, grit and determination, dedication, sheer hard work and huge sacrifice, today will decide the line-up of sailors who will claim the Olympic gold, silver and bronze medals in the 470 Men and 470 Women events in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Protests last night have impacted the final leaderboard top 10, although not changed the potential medallists.

In the 470 Men, a three-way battle will unfold in the double points medal race between Sime Fantela/Igor Marenic (CRO), Panagotis Mantis/Pavlos Kagialis (GRE) and Mathew Belcher/Will Ryan (AUS).

Great Britain's Hannah Mills/Saskia Clark wrapped up gold after race 10 yesterday, and now just need to start and finish the medal race without penalty. Behind them the battle for silver and bronze is open, with plenty of scorecard permutations possible and a finely balanced fight on the cards.

The forecast currently indicates 9-12 knots when the 470 Women Medal Race kicks off at 1300 hours, and 9-16 knots for the 470 Men when their Medal Race gets underway at 1400 hours.
